Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Enzyme Replacement Therapy Market size is estimated to cross USD 14 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of enzyme replacement therapy was USD 10 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to rising prevalence of lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) in the population owing to rising diseases and an unhealthy lifestyle. There were 766 LSD diagnoses in the Australian population during the 12-year period, January 2009 through December 2020, including 32 successful pregnancies.

Also, the growing population is expected to boost the market further over the forecast period. The growth in population is anticipated to lead a rise in the prevalence of rare diseases, which is also expected to fuel the demand for enzyme replacement therapy. The population of the world is projected to rise by 2 billion people during the next 30 years, from 7.7 billion people today to 9.7 billion in 2050, with a potential peak of approximately 11 billion people around the year 2100.

The worldwide incidence of lysosomal storage illnesses, including Gaucher, Fabry, Pompe, and MPS, is steadily rising. For instance, as per information released by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in August 2021, approximately one in 40,000 individuals in the United States had Pompe disease, which is predicted to be roughly 32,950 individuals. Furthermore, the National Fabry Foundation estimates that the entire Fabry patient number in the USA will be roughly 7,713 in May 2020. As a result of the significant number of patients experiencing rare lysosomal storage illnesses, there is a huge requirement for efficient treatments, including enzyme replacement therapy.

Enzyme Replacement Therapy Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Government Spending on Healthcare Infrastructure – Governments of different nations are focusing on expanding the healthcare sector to treat people and combating health issues. As a result of rising investment in healthcare infrastructure, the size of enzyme replacement therapy market is expected to expand in the assessment period. According to an estimate, in 2020, the United States spent more than USD 3 trillion on healthcare.
  • Rise in Prevalence of Rare Disease - There are between 1,000 and 2,000 new occurrences of ALSP each year, which is a rare, inherited, autosomal dominant neurological condition with strong penetrance that affects an estimated 10,000 persons in the US.
  • Growing Cases of Pompe Disease - Since enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) serves as the only viable treatment option for Pompe disease. Therefore, increasing cases of the illness are anticipated to contribute to market expansion. ERT has contributed to disease course stabilization with motor and pulmonary modifications in patient populations with late-onset Pompe disease. According to experts, there are between approximate 4,000 and about 9,000 cases of Pompe disease globally.
  • Technology Advancement - The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended that Lamzede (velmanase alfa), a long-term enzyme replacement therapy for adults, adolescents, and children with mild to moderate forms of alpha-mannosidosis, be given marketing authorization in the European Union (EU).
  • Growing Genetic Disorder - A genetically based ailment will affect roughly 6 out of every 10 individuals across the globe.


  • Lack of Awareness - Lack of awareness about enzyme replacement therapy among developing nations is slowing down the adoption rate of enzyme replacement therapy. Also, the deficiency of technology and adequate infrastructure is expected to hamper the market growth.
  • High Cost of Enzyme Replacement Therapy
  • Stringent Reimbursement Policies

Enzyme Replacement Therapy Segmentation

Product (Agalsidase Beta, Imiglucerase, Velaglucerase Alfa, Idursulfase, Galsulfase, Laronidase)

The global enzyme replacement therapy market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by-products into agalsidase beta, imiglucerase, velaglucerase alfa, and others, out of which, the agalsidase beta segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2033, backed by increasing prevalence of chronic disease in the population across the world owing to consumption of unhealthy food items and an engaged damaging lifestyle. Between 2000 and 2030, it was predicted that the number of Americans with chronic diseases would increase by around 45 million, or roughly 36%. Furthermore, the agalsidase segment held the second-largest market share in 2023. The increased cost and growing adoption of this medication in the treatment of Fabry disease are the principal factors for this segment's substantial market share.

Disease (Gaucher Disease, Fabry Disease, Pompe Disease, Mucopolysaccharidosis, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency [EPI])

The global enzyme replacement therapy market is segmented and evaluated for demand and availability by disease into Gaucher disease, Fabry disease, Pompe disease, mucopolysaccharidosis, and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency [EPI], out of which, the exocrine pancreatic insufficiency segment captures the largest share in 2023 owing to the increasing incidence of this ailment amongst the general population. Furthermore, the high pervasiveness of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency among individuals suffering from chronic pancreatitis and cystic fibrosis contributes to a rise in the disease's patient group. This, in turn, contributes to this segment's supremacy over the forecast period. According to a Cleveland Clinic organization report, nearly 9 out of 10 infants with cystic fibrosis develop EPI during the first year. The remainder is in danger of developing EPI as children or adults.
